The Music award season is on. Before many could get over Eddy Kenzo's win or Bebe and Chameleone's loss at the MTV MAMAs, we can yet reveal that other nominations have been released.
The All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA), remember the guys that launched in Kampala this May? Yes, the first batch of their nomination list has been released and it seems Chameleone is having a field day.
As you could imagine, Nigerians lead the nominations in the open categories like Artiste of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the year.
Chameleone's Wale Wale is up for one of them in the Song of the Year Category where he's up against WizKid's Ojuelegba, P-Square's Shekini, Diamond Platinumz' Nasema Nawe, Yemi Alade's Kissing and Sauti Sol's Sura Yako among others.
He later shows up in the Artiste of the Year Category alongside Ali Kiba, another Tanzanian on fire this year, WizKid, Yemi Alade, Sarkodie, Flavor, Davido, Olamide and Diamond Platinumz.
The regional category for the Best Male East African artiste still has only Chameleone representing Uganda against the usual, Diamond, Ali Kiba, Jaguar, Kidum and Teddy Afro.
The biggest surprise though is in the Best East African Female artiste where all the usual suspects like  Tanzania's Vanessa Mdee or Kenya's Victoria Kimani are missing in action, even when they both had a good year. But guess who makes the list, former Blu3 vocalist Lilian Mbabazi.

Lilian is nominated because of her amazing and easily convincing Simple Girl.
More nominations in Traditional, Hip Hop, Reggae and other genres are yet to be released.......
